Good afternoon everyone,
Hope this finds you all well. I’ve been busy in the craft room trying to get my Christmas cards finished still a work in progress.
I have been a little hesitant about using the new embossing mats but now that I have, I don’t think I can put them down! How versatile are these little beauties! All your framelits and thinlets can now become both embossed and cut! Doubling the effects on your projects. Check out this card I did using the Peaceful Poinsettia thinlets. I hope you can see from the photo that it has embossed the image instead of just cutting it out. I have then used the outline thinlet to actually cut the entire flower out, I did it on whisper white cardstock but I then coloured it using my cherry cobler stampin blends for a shaded look. You could just use Cherry Cobler or any colour cardstock. The foliage is old olive cardstock but cut out using the sprig punch. The background is the tufted embossing folder from the Annual Catalogue. The card base is Very Vanilla. The sprig punch and the Peaceful Poinsettia are only available until 2nd January to if you would like to order these products, you had better be quick. I also used the metallic gold thread and a strip of DSP across the middle of the card.

Hope you like today’s card. I was so impressed about how the embossing mats work! They are available in the annual catalogue as well.
Hope you have a great day.
Until next time!
